Cast & Credits
I didnt understand the title, until I did...North/South Korea is a movie subject FAVOURITE of mine so I was curious about this one, and contemplated watching it (I Love these types of spy movies); I am also a HUUUUGE BigBang fan, so that trailer where crooked is playing settled it for me. I Had to watch this (lol).
Something that I really enjoyed about this movie was how they showed "a day in the life of-" for both character, the northern one and the southern one. That comparison made it glaringly obvious how very different their lives were even though they were similar age and occupation (both had government type jobs).
Everything was very exciting and tense until a little ways in to South Korea, when they are having their weird road trip bonding. The movie lost its steam for me there, but culturally I still found it interesting; how all of these simple little things in one place were not little or simple at all in another (I mean that both way, not just south to north).
Overall nothing really pulled me in, so this is not a movie I would watch again. The excitement and intrigue was interesting, but like i said, it didn't pull me in. The acting was decent, and the story was fine, but there just seemed to be something missing.
